2 Last Time Probability Models and Rules Discrete Probability Models Equally Likely Outcomes
3 Crystallographic notation The first symbol is always a p, which indicates that the pattern repeats (is periodic ) in the horizontal direction. The second symbol is m if there is a vertical line of reflection. Otherwise, it is 1. The third symbol is m (for mirror ), if there is a horizontal line of reflection (in which case there is also glide reflection) a (for alternating ), if there is a glide reflection but no horizontal reflection 1 if there is no horizontal reflection or glide reflection The fourth symbol is 2, if there is halfturn rotational symmetry; otherwise, it is 1.
4 Group A group is a collection of elements {A, B, } and an operation between pairs of them such that the following properties hold: Closure: The result of one element operating on another is itself an element of the collection (A B is in the collection). Identity element: There is a special element I, called the identity element, such that the result of an operation involving the identity and any element is that same element (I A = A and A I = A). Inverses: For any element A, there is another element, called its inverse and denoted A 1, such that the result of an operation involving an element and its inverse is the identity element (A A 1 = I and A 1 A = I ). Associativity: The result of several consecutive operations is the same regardless of grouping or parenthesizing, provided that the consecutive order of operations is maintained: A B C = A (B C) = (A B) C.
5 Probability Rules Probability Rules Rule 1. The probability P(A) of any event A satisfies 0 P(A) 1. Rule 2. If S is the sample space in a probability model, then P(S) = 1. Rule 3. The complement rule: P(A C ) = 1 P(A). Rule 4. The multiplication rule for independent events: P(A and B) = P(A) P(B). Rule 5. The general addition rule: P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) P(A and B). Rule 6. The addition rule for disjoint events: P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B).
6 Counting distinct items Counting Ordered Collections of Distinct Items Rule A. Suppose we have a collection of n distinct items. We want to arrange k of these items in order, and the same item can appear more than once in the arrangement. The number of possible arrangements is n n n = n k Rule B. (Permutations) Suppose we have a collection of n distinct items. We want to arrange k of these items in order, and any item can appear no more than once in the arrangement. The number of possible arrangements is n (n 1) (n k + 1)
7 Counting Distinct Items Counting Unordered Collections of Distinct Items Rule C. Suppose that we have a collection of n distinct items. We want to select k of those items with no regard to order, and any item can appear more than once in the collection. The number of possible collections is (n + k 1)! k!(n 1)! Rule D. (Combinations) Suppose that we have a collection of n distinct items. We want to select k of these items with no regard to order, and any item can appear no more than once in the collection. The number of possible selections is n! k!(n k)!
8 Question Choose a young adult (aged 25 to 34 years) at random.
